Episode 145 – Discussing The 2013 Orphans Midwest Film Symposium
On this week’s episode, we’re talking to IU Film Archivist Rachael Stoeltje and organizer Josephine McRobbie about the 2013 Orphans Midwest Film Symposium. This is a major academic conference, and it is open to the public. The theme of the event is “Materiality and the Moving Image”. The Orphans Film Symposium is an academic conference that focuses on films that are out of copyright. Most of these films are non-theatrical but include art pieces, home movies, and other oddities of film, paired with academic panels explaining the significance. This year, many of the panels will focus on material from the IU Film Archives.
We start out with a brief What Have You Seen Lately and Andy is talking about some of the Nicolas Winding Refn events. Jason is out this week, but our guest host James Paasche is helping us out by filling in.
We then start discussing the Orphans Midwest Film Symposium. This event normally occurs every other year, but we’re hosting a special off-year version thanks to the IU Cinema and the IU Film Archives. If you enjoy seeing film that you will never get a chance to see anywhere else, and have a good sense of adventure and fun, this event is definitely for you. Listen to the episode and discover what’s available.
